Jambay Lhakhang: The temple is dedicated to the Buddha of the Future and was built in the 7th century. It is one of the oldest temples in the country. There are three different temples to explore in the main building.
Kurjey Lhakhang: Kurjey means “body imprint.” Guru Rimpoche first came to this place to help cure the local king who was being made seriously ill through the malevolent actions of the local deity. Guru Rimpoche meditated in one of the caves and left his body imprint inside (thus the name Kurjey). As the protector of Buddhism, he subdued the local deity, a feat that allowed him to convert the king and local people to Buddhism. This event marked the introduction of Buddhism to Bhutan.
Tamshing Lhakhang: Pema Lingpa was the only religious treasure discoverer born in Bhutan in the 15th century, and he was also a great artist and architect. This temple was built by him. The paintings you will see date back to same time period and were painted by him. There is also an iron chain vest forged and used by Pema Lingpa during the construction of temple. Nowadays, people carry this chain around the temple three times to cleanse their sins.
Jambay Lhakhang: This monastery was built in the 7th century by Tibetan King, Songtsen Gampo. It is one of the 108 monasteries built by him to subdue evil spirits n the Himalayan region. Its present architectural appearance dates back to early 20th century.
Konchogsum Lhakhang: It was built in the 6th century but was renovated in 1995, which accounts for its fresh look. It contained a large bell and it is said that when this bell was rung it could be heard all the way in Lhasa in Tibet. During the 17th century a Tibetan Army tried to steal this bell but was too heavy and they dropped it and cracked it. It is now displayed at the National Museum in Paro.
